Introducing SunRide On-Demand Rideshare Service in Our Community

Have you heard about SunRide? ​This on-demand rideshare service is the newest transportation option offered by SunLine Transit Agency. Rides are booked using an app within six different geo-fenced zones in the Coachella Valley, and it is now available here in Cathedral City.

SunRide connects riders to SunLine’s fixed route network or a number of other points of interest within the same zone – from shopping centers and medical facilities to local parks, schools and businesses.

Riders use this service with a smartphone app, which will call for a SunRide vehicle (a small neighborhood-friendly van) to pick them up at a destination within the designated zones and/or bus stops.

Here’s how it works:

  1. Book your ride using the SunRide app (which can be downloaded in your App Store) or calling Customer Service
  2. The app will identify the ‘virtual stop’ nearest you and that is where you will meet your driver
  3. Once you enter the SunRide vehicle, your driver will take you to the destination you booked within the app

The cost to ride is only $3 per person, per trip. Book a ride within 15 minutes or schedule a ride up to seven days in advance. All vehicles are ADA-accessible.

SunRide is available Monday-Friday 5:30 a.m.-6:30 p.m.
